Students were challenged to build an ice dam (marshmallows and frosting) strong enough to withstand a pool of water (blue jello). They worked in groups of 3 to construct their walls, and then took them outside to flood them. The pouring rain made it feel pretty real! As you will see in the photos, absolutely no frosting was consumed in the making of our dams 🙂 Also: Thank you families for your donations!
We were also lucky to enjoy a visit from David Shapiro, author of Terra Tempo. This graphic novel about the Missoula Floods has informed much of our instruction this winter.
